Does losing weight make us happier?

We could think that losing the extra kilos increases our level of satisfaction. In fact, when we start a diet one of the main arguments in favor of weight loss is that it will improve our self-esteem and, consequently, improve our psychological health.

We live in a society that condemns overweight to discriminatory levels however, we tend to forget the mental imbalances that the process of dietary regime can bring.

Are diets depressing?

A study showed that by losing 5 percent or more of our weight we are physically healthier but we are also more depressed.

Psychologist Sarah E. Jackson of the University College in London, discovered that nutritional restrictions reduce our mood by 50 percent.

One of the reasons why this happens is that we are disappointed with the results. Most diets promise rapid weight loss, an increase in immediate well-being and conceal the effort involved in following the regimen. When this does not happen and we must do an enormous amount of willpower, we get depressed.

On the other hand, there is the hedonistic component. Most of us enjoy good food and different flavors. This vital enjoyment is restricted when we carry out a thinning process. Subtracting these positive feelings from our life can pass us bills.
